Education & Research Trainings

Alpha Theta Center

Welcome to the Alpha Theta Center Education and Research Consultation Page

Whether you are a clinician learning how to interpret your client’s EEGs, or a researcher examining the efficacy of an intervention, then you have come to the right place. We offer quality educational coursework covering EEG and ERP digital signal processing and analysis techniques at all levels.

We have designed a series of webinars to help you learn both basic and advanced principles of digital signal processing and how these principles apply to the EEG, in a clinical or research setting. We have structured our education like a small academy, starting with a foundation and graduating up, ensuring no one gets lost along the way.

Why clinicians study with us:

We design some of our education with a clinician’s viewpoint in mind. In other words, we teach clinicians how advanced EEG tools can be used and applied to their clinical data.

We are experts with a clear conceptualization of various techniques which provide insight into brain dynamics for beginning and advanced users.

Why researchers study with us:

We practice the discipline of experimental psychology:

We can design an experimental paradigm with optimal parameters in terms of EEG and behavioral studies.

We can help you develop novel analysis tools needed using modern principles in signal processing (filter theory, time-frequency domain data processing, such as Fourier Transform, Wavelet analysis, cross-frequency coupling, Granger Causality, MVAR etc)

 We have deep experience in inferential statistics, and applied mathematics, particularly linear algebra for spatial filter method like ICA and source analysis.

Why we are qualified:

We have strong collective scientific and clinical backgrounds: Team members include reviewers for established journals, recipients of competitive grant funding from the National Institute of Health in excess of millions of dollars and presenters of scientific data at multiple Society for Neuroscience conferences, with the latest submission being this past 2018.

Psychedelics, The EEG & The Gray Domain Between

December 20, 2019

11am PST

60 minute webinar

Is plant medicine an adaptogen, and if so, can we see the effects in the EEG? What is this gray domain between psychedelics and the EEG? How can we explore it? Should we? Can we learn something useful to help consciousness? How is it at smaller doses, euphemistically called ‘microdosing’, psychedelics appear to stabilize mood, energy, appetite levels, and even regulate elimination during the day?  In this webinar, Dr. Villanueva will share his findings, observations, hunches, and concerns so that you will have more information.
